Mary Beth Leininger, DVM, director of Professional Affairs at Hill’s Pet Nutrition Inc. of Topeka, Kan., is retiring after almost 10 years of service. Daniel Aja, DVM, will fill the position in January.

Dr. Leininger will stay on to assist with the transition through the end of March.

“I can’t say enough about my experience here at Hill’s,” she said. “This is a company that is truly committed to the veterinary profession. It has been an honor for me to be a part of it and especially to have the opportunity to speak on behalf of the wonderful people who make up the Hill’s organization. Dr. Aja is a truly gifted and dedicated professional and I am thrilled that he is joining Hill’s. The best is yet to come.”
